Important: beware of unauthorised agencies!

Beware of agencies and websites claiming to offer registration and accommodation services for the ECNP Congress. The only websites for the ECNP Congress are www.ecnp.eu and www.ecnp.eu/Congress2021. All other websites and organisations are unconnected to ECNP and using our name and/or logo without authorisation, probably with fraudulent intent.
